I’m boycotting stores this (and every) Black Friday.
Instead, I’ll be home with my girls, whipping up some quick handmade gifts like these.
For the gal that needs some serious pampering,
My homemade 3-ingredient lemon salt scrub is just the ticket to paradise.
Presentation is everything so pop it in a cute mason jar and tie a vintage spoon for scooping.
Need a hostess gift for less than $2?
My music lyric plate can be customized with a favorite poem, saying or special date.
You could even fill it with goodies and tell the hostess keep the plate.
Mom would love a candle.
Turn an ugly glass vase into a shimmering candle holder.
Know someone that like a long soak?
Homemade bath salts are simple to whip up.
And my favorite are these monogrammed drinking glasses.
They look like they came straight from the shelves of Pottery Barn.
Why stop at a handmade gift?
Make your own gift bags too – out of any paper.
Here’s to spending less money and spending more time being creative.
